Made from low yielding fruit from the Lethbridge vineyard.  Each variety is processed and matured separately in 70% new French oak for 18 months. The wine is blended prior to bottling to produce a balanced style that will improve for many years.

A subtle nose of cassis and spice unfolds slowly while firm tannins provide the backbone for a palate which carries on the cassis and spice, with some roundness and blackberry flavours from the merlot, while the acid and structure gives length.
